Member Testimonials

"TheNextBigWriter has been such an important part of my journey to becoming a published author. In the years since I became a member, I have learned so much about writing and myself. Beyond the valuable feedback on my work, I have made some amazing friends who have pushed me further than I ever imagined possible."

Angela Fristoe (penang), USA Today Bestselling Author

"I honestly don't know where I'd be as an author without tNBW. This international community of writers provides support in all aspects of the craft, from drafting that first novel or short story, to publishing and marketing. Members have access to diverse perspectives and areas of expertise, as well as the opportunity to interact with writers of all genres. I have met some of my best critique partners on tNBW, and have grown immensely as a writer thanks to the honest feedback I've received through the site."

Karin Rita Gastreich, author of Eolyn, High Maga, and Creatures of Light

"Just a quick note to tell you how much I am enjoying the site. I have only been a member for 3 weeks or so, but I have 50 reviews so far. I was a member of a local writers group for a couple years. It would've taken me a year or more to amass that many reviews! The quality and thoroughness of critiques I have received speaks to the quality of writers on the site - a big plus when putting your work out there for review. So glad I found this site. Members have improved my writing already and I have connected with writers from all over the world!"

"In the acknowledgements page of my novel, The Side Effect, I gave thanks for the help TheNextBigWriter gave me in workshopping the book. In my next published novel, The Flame, I acknowledged the TNBW writers by name who critiqued the entire story. I'm going to do the same for my next three novels, one of which, Skeleton Run (formerly Teammates), will be coming out in late spring/early summer of 2015. Two more are scheduled to follow during the next year."

John DeBoer (jack the knife), author of The Side Effect and The Flame
